The tool allows users to create customized line profiles and visualize the results. After entering the equipment or work cell names, the designed or actual speeds of the equipment, and a factor for accumulation between assets, the user is presented with an easy to read v-profile of their line.

A properly designed line will fall within the green shaded area, ideally maintaining a smooth v-profile as the line moves further away from the constraint. Deviation from a smooth v-profile indicates areas of opportunity to improve.

Designed specifically for the CPG industry, the tool has been actively used in real world applications, helping identify areas of improvement and leading to significant improvements in line performance. This simulation software tool is easy to use, and completely free. Click here for more information: http://www.oeeguru.com/packaging-line-balancing-tool
